Back to News Listing New Screenshots Released for Across the Dnepr: Second Edition!

Type: Press Release

New images are smashing into enemy lines for this revamp of a classic game

Matrix Games and Strategic Studies Group (www.ssg.com.au) are pleased to release the first pack of screenshots for their upcoming turn-based WWII strategy game, Across the Dnepr: Second Edition. The new images display some of the strategic and epic confrontations you can expect from the improved and expanded new edition of Across the Dnepr, which expands on the successful Kharkov: Disaster on the Donets engine.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “We are elated to be close to release for another SSG title that is sure to be a hit with wargamers around the world. Veterans of the war and strategy game genre, Strategic Studies Group has amassed an incredible list of accolades and awards and a reputation for quality gameplay with few equals, so each new release is a reason to get excited!”

 

Can the Blitzkrieg be stopped?

 

July 1941: Four mighty German armies have smashed through the Soviet frontier defences, and are aimed directly at Moscow. Before Moscow can fall, Smolensk must be taken. The Red Army, recovering from the initial onslaught and reinforced by Stalin has been ordered to counterattack the unsuspecting Germans. This massive collision of forces produces a maelstrom of men and machines. For the Germans, delay at Smolensk equals defeat at Moscow. For the Red Army, no price is too high to pay.

 

Across the Dnepr: Second Edition revisits a classic on a new system. Created from the ground up as an expansion for SSG’s latest acclaimed game engine, Kharkov: Disaster on the Donets, the Second Edition of Across the Dnepr includes Areas of Operations, the latest AI programming and multiple Mystery Variants to keep gamers guessing.  The Across the Dnepr: Second Edition package also includes three free scenarios, Operation Husky, Operation Konrad and Kirovograd, also released with the latest update to Kharkov: Disaster on the Donets.  Running on a proven wargaming engine hailed as “a real strategy heavyweight” by critics, these new and recharged scenarios illustrate just what can be done with the powerful editing tools included in SSG’s new series.

 

  • Huge new 20 day campaign based on the classic Across the Dnepr campaign from a previous award winning SSG title
  • Includes 3 free scenarios in addition to the Across the Dnepr mega-scenario: Operation Husky, Operation Konrad and Kirovograd
  • Improved AI
  • Multiple scenario variants to keep gamers guessing - choose to fight a scenario historically or choose to randomize the variants to keep things unpredictable!
  • User Interface refinements to further improve on the time-tested and acclaimed SSG game system
  • A new (and brutal) unit is now available, Russian NKVD, which can be used to prevent other units from retreating!
  • Across the Dnepr: Second Edition is an expansion and requires Kharkov: Disaster on the Donets in order to play.

Strategic Command Beta AAR: First Moves

Thursday, July 28, 2016

Welcome to the first Beta-AAR of Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe.  This is a mini AAR, and as such, the AAR will only cover the inital shots in Gleiwitz Poland in September of 1939, to the fall of France in mid 1940.   Since the game is still in Beta, there might be some changes of the material covered between now and the final release, but the game already feels complete and the development team assures me that they don’t expect much to change other than minor items to ensure any final polish and balance to the main campaign.

Players familiar with the Strategic Command series will immediately notice the much bigger map. In the north, the passage around Norway to Archangelsk is ready for sub warfare, and in the south, a large part of Africa has been modeled as well.

Command LIVE: You Brexit, You Fix it!

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Is there anything that seems more crucial in recent European history than the possibility of Great Britain leaving the European Union?

Probably not, because it’s really too early to say what the likely outcomes are for the near future. Nevertheless, many military observers seem pretty much convinced that this event could make NATO, the main western collective defensive system, weaker and less effective: What if other countries decide to follow the British example and like in a domino effect, the internal cohesion and cooperation of the European nations is diminished as a consequence?
